Toyota showcased compact hatchback Yaris based Sub Four Meter SUV at the Geneva Motor Show 2020.
Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) announced the release of the Yaris Cross, a new-model compact SUV. The development of the new-generation Yaris Cross aims to pursue new value as a compact SUV that not only offers convenience but also carries on the nimble driving, advanced security and safety technology, and superior fuel economy features of the Yaris series. The new Toyota Yaris Cross was a goal to develop a vehicle that can help redefine what an urban-type compact SUV.
At the front, the Yaris Cross SUV gets a three-dimensional structure with the central front, lower front and fender. The side is dominated by the horizontal line of the upper body from the front to the taillights. The unique character line, which flows from the rear door to the front of the cabin, emphasises the spaciousness of the cabin. At the rear, the SUV gets a square-shaped central portion and large back door opening. The fender, with a generous overhang, also expresses powerful robustness, in the same way as the front.
On the inside, the Yaris Cross SUV cabin space has a sophisticated and comfortable feel. The SUV gets a TFT colour LCD multi-information display. All models come equipped with Display Audio (DA) and DCM as standard features. Smartphone applications and other functions can be linked with SmartDeviceLink and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
Yaris Cross SUV comes with a 4WD system with options to select multiple terrain modes, first for a Toyota compact SUV. The hybrid model is the first Toyota compact SUV to have an E-Four (electric four-wheel-drive) system.
Yaris Cross equipped with a new-generation hybrid electric vehicle system which uses a 1.5-litre inline three-cylinder Dynamic Force Engine based on the TNGA philosophy. The combustion engine has a thermal efficiency of up to 40 per cent and can power the vehicle alone in front-wheel-drive mode.
Besides the regular safety features, Toyota has introduced a new one called the S-VSC with lateral wind control. The system deploys when strong lateral winds are detected when driving on the highway. This function keeps the vehicle from crossing over the lane to support safe driving.
By adopting the all-new hybrid system and the TNGA platform (GA-B) for compact cars, the "Yaris Cross" offers a higher dimension of basic and environmental performance. Also, the vehicle achieves an easy-to-handle body size while providing SUV-like interior comfort and luggage room.
The exterior design, though simple, expresses the robustness of an SUV. The interior design is also shaped to give it a feeling of higher quality and comfort. The price of the new generation Yaris Cross starts at 1,798,000 Japanese yen. The top-end hybrid electric four-wheel-drive model is priced at 2,815,000 Japanese yen.
